Price: $33.25
Manufacturer: Pharmax

Product Code: PA0147


HCI & Pepsin 180c is available by Pharmax.

Features & benefits
? HCl & Pepsin lowers stomach acid to aid the metabolism of proteins, increase absorption of minerals (notably calcium) and provide a barrier for entry of microorganisms into the G.I. tract
? The protease, pepsin, is the active protein-digesting enzyme in the stomach
? Lipase has lipolytic activity

Pepsin, the active protein-digesting enzyme in the stomach, is secreted from the chief cells as the inactive peptide, pepsinogen. Pepsinogen is activated by stomach acid to its active form pepsin. Food proteins often have the form of a ?ball of yarn? that needs to be denatured before pepsin can ?cleave? individual peptide bonds. Adequate stomach acid production is required to denature proteins.

Individuals who are hypochlorhydric, often have incomplete protein digestion, which can result in digestive disturbances such as bloating, nausea and general digestive discomfort.

Adequate stomach acid also provides a barrier effect to the entry of microorganisms into the gastrointestinal tract.
